The DHZB had its own digital controlling instrument for personnel deployment planning even before the federal government introduced the lower limits for nursing staff (PpUG): The "Care Management Dashboard". It records actual and target values of ward staffing and makes them visually available in the form of quickly graspable diagrams. In real time.

This enables nursing management to react early on to impending bottlenecks and to react at short notice in the event of unforeseen outages. For this purpose, the outage manager at the DHZB care management department uses a new company agreement for outage concepts, which was developed together with the works council. This includes the "pool", a team of nurses who, thanks to their experience and skills, can be deployed universally and enjoy special benefits in return, including a monthly bonus of 700 euros.

The care keys that can be monitored with the help of the dashboard are far stricter at the DHZB than the legally prescribed lower limits of the PPGUV. For example, the PPGUV stipulates a ratio of one nurse to 2.5 patients on day duty and a ratio of 1:3 on night duty in intensive care units. At the DHZB, on the other hand, a ratio of 1:2 applies in the intensive care unit - around the clock.

Also on normal wards, which are called "N+" at the DHZB because of the extended requirements for nurses, the legislator provides for a lower limit of 1:11 (during the day) and 1:22(at night) - at the DHZB the ratios 1:7 (during the day) and 1:12 (at night) apply; on the largest surgical ward H2 even 1:5 and 1:8 respectively.
